Lancaster, South Carolina, is a beautiful town which was formerly a huge textile mill area for Springs Industries, Inc. As textiles moved away, the people of Lancaster adapted and are now transforming into new areas. Recently, we learned that some of the former textile plants will be reopening, and the experienced operators that used to work for Springs can return to their former occupations. And, the next generation of textile workers can get a job that was once the backbone of the Lancaster economy. Of course, there are other industries and manufacturing centers in Lancaster. These are typically good paying jobs but are also dangerous work. In addition to the usual concerns about machine safety, there are risks associated with being around “cotton dust” and other breathing dangers. We urge all employers in Lancaster and South Carolina to utilize all available safety devices to protect their most valuable asset – their employees. We also encourage everyone on the job to be as safe as possible. Don’t risk your life or health for pay. It is not worth it. Be Safe. Get Home.
